NUJ holds regional jobs crisis summit

An emergency meeting of NUJ reps from across the regional press is to be held in London tomorrow as the jobs crisis in the industry escalates with 100 editorial posts axed in one day. Yesterday, a total of 59 redundancies were announced across Trinity Mirror’s north west division, which includes 43 jobs at the company’s Liverpool titles and eight from north Wales. Telegraph Media Group has also announced plans to make cuts, which could lead to 50 jobs going and the Cumbria-based CN Group said yesterday that 30 jobs were being cut. The NUJ says the aim of Saturday's meeting is to co-ordinate a campaign against the job cuts.
